Only just becoming well known in the west the Miracle Tree lives up to its name. Every part of this fast growing tree is edible and all parts provide more of our daily requirements than any other food plants. It is high in calcium, magnesium, iron and vitamins A and C- all of which help to boost energy levels and moods, lower blood pressure and improve the function of our immune system.
To germinate seed, soak seed overnight in water. The next day, peel open the outer shell to reveal the pea-like seed inside. You can either plant in seed raising mix or pre- germinate in a container with some moistened paper towel. If pre-germinating, sit the seeds on top of the paper towel and place a lid on the container. Within a week seed should germinate and can be planted into a pot in seed raising mix. Be careful not to damage the tender new shoots. They do not need to be deep. Alternatively, sow seed in seed raising mix and place in a propagation unit or container to germinate in a humid environment.
